Nice room and staff
Tomáš U [TA], ,

The room is quite large, well equipped and clean. Same with bathroom. Really couldn't ask more.
The staff was friendly and gave us some helpful tips.
We had also breakfasts, toast bread with butter and jam, fruit plate, omelette and tea, very good!
Actually the best accommodation we had on Sri Lanka!

Very Clean and lovely view
Michelled... [TA], , London, United Kingdom

We enjoyed our time here it is convenient location to the beach. There is seating on the balconies where you can enjoy the lovely views and enjoy the nature around you. The stairs are steep so not suitable for small children or elderly travellers

clean, good location but overbooked
Ce1ine [TA], , Cannes, France

prime location (not on the beach but close enough) and away from the hustle and bustle. Clean rooms but be wary to book online, it may not be valid when you arrive as they overbook. Staff are accommodating as far as possible.

Room Tip: Dont bet on your online booking to still be valid when you arrive.

Very Average
Kelly H [TA], ,

We booked through for one night, superior double room with breakfast.

The room was on the top floor, oblique views of the sea. Noise from the road below is BAD - get a room at the back of the building if you like a peaceful nights sleep.

The bathroom was good, recently renovated & hot shower. The bed comfortable although two tiny single sheets to sleep under...It could do with a deep clean (dirty mossie net, fridge etc) and the room felt a bit damp.

Breakfast the next morning was non-existent, told that nobody working and we could go to cafe on the beach. Ok as it was deducted from room price, but inconvenient...

Overall, this place is ok for a short stay but it is overpriced for what it is.

Lovely pool of calm
MartinofA... [TA], , Matlock, United Kingdom

We stayed at this lovely place last week, after just arriving from Columbo. The bedrooms are big, spotlessly clean and have air con, if you need it... It is close to the centre of town, but not too close, near the beach and the owners are very friendly.... The top floor rooms have lovely views through the bamboos and we saw monkeys, a beautiful green lizard and lots of nice birds.... Thanks for looking after us guys! Martin and Nessie....

Better than average but nothing special
nlaguiler... [TA], , Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

The guesthouse is located near the beach which is nice but I found my room to be quite stuff and always felt damp. There was a nice balcony to hang out on and watch the monkeys play in the trees. There are many restaurants nearby and the hotel had a laundry service that was reasonably priced. I booked online in advance and people that were turning up without reservations were getting better prices. As per usual, it was the staff that really made this place nice. The staff were really great and helpful and helped us find restaurants and stores and advised us on where to book whale watching through. I would return and stay here again in the future.

Nice guesthouse near the beach
Alex M [TA], ,

We stayed at primrose guesthouse for 8 nights at the end of August, just the room no breakfast. We didn't use air conditioning as the ceiling fan was very good and the shower was great with lots of hot water. The guesthouse is ideally located, about 20 seconds from the beach and near lots of restaurants. All the rooms also have a lovely individual area to sit outside which we used a lot to relax. The room was very clean, and cleaned mid way through our stay. We were fussy and wanted to change rooms after a couple of days as our mattress was a bit soft for us but then decided to change back again and the staff were more than accommodating with our annoying changes, helping us move our bags and everything. Some of the staff seemed slightly more reserved (maybe language barrier) but after a couple of days everyone one really friendly and we chatted to them a lot. The owner was very helpful with anything we asked him and there was a guard on the door all the time which made us feel safe. The bed linen and towels could've been fresher- they were definitely clean just a bit old looking. However as it was our first guesthouse we didn't appreciate enough the square mosquito net around a 4 poster bed, which turns out to be quite a luxury! Overall for us great value, great location and we would stay again.

Kingsize close to the beach
NomadYogi... [TA], , Cape Town, South Africa

Had a great two night stay at Primrose. The owner and family are helpful and friendly.
Kingsize bed. Spacious airy bathroom. Lovely balcony with monkeys thrashing around in the bamboo. One minute walk to the beach. Lonely Planet description was exactly right!

Incidentally Galle is very interesting and extremely close by. Don't miss out on the 'new' city.
The Fort is picturesque, but the working town is pedestrian friendly and fascinating on street level in a way that I haven't experienced elsewhere in SL.

Room Tip: Top floor is worth the extra.

Top place near the beach
Nikolaus... [TA], ,

Good vibes, nice and helpfull people, big rooms, clean, good bed, guardian at night and not loud like the ones 50 meters around the corner right at the beach...
Good and empty surf spots around...
And fairly priced...

WE wanted to stay for one day in Galle. We will stay 2-3 more days...

Brilliant Stay
Udalamath... [TA], , Naples, Florida

We stayed here for our anniversary as a short break. The place is conveniently located and is a treat to be in. It was worth every penny and the staff and service and attention to detail especially the romantic package was excellent. The interiors were plush and luxurious and we just enjoyed everything about our stay. Very highly recommended and well worth the tripadvisor accolades from before. We will go back there soon.
